Here Comes the Sun

A perfect sunless tanner that doesn’t leave a its user orange, streaky, or smelling like a burnt lima bean can seem like an urban myth. Leave it to locally based skincare pioneers Hampton Sun to formulate a product that not only leaves you with perfectly even coloring, but the shades themselves so perfectly mimic the effects of the East End sun that even the most dedicated sunbather would be deceived. Though the 10-year-old company features a whole array of top-tier SPF products, it’s the all-new Sunless Tanning Mist that truly sets Hampton Sun in a world apart.

Diamonds Are Forever

Southampton and its residents are about to shine a little brighter thanks to the first-ever Graff Diamonds exhibition at the London Jewelers of Southampton event. Running July 10 to 12, the exhibit arrives on the heels of another Graff event, the sponsorship of Art Southampton’s VVIP preview on July 9. The preview will feature a first look at the meticulously curated collection of pieces from the famed jeweler’s new line, with each item carefully handcrafted by the finest artisans and made with the very best materials, diamonds, and gemstones available.

Southern Hospitality

It’s a consummate fact that no one does summertime like southerners. This month, the clothier Southern Tide is bringing its extensive line of shirts, shorts, swimsuits and beach accessories to Southampton as part of online retailer Country Club Prep’s first pop-up shop. In addition to the brand’s signature apparel, Southern Tide is launching a star-spangled “Freedom Rocks” collection just in time for Independence Day. The brand, now ubiquitous in the South, is sure to be a tent pole for the East End’s most sartorially conscious residents.

Barre None

Carving out a base of loyal followers amazed by results, Xtend Barre exercise studio is revitalizing the way we think about exercise—with some amazing results. The brainchild of fitness guru Andrea Roberts, the Xtend Barre method blends Pilates and dance together for a core-strengthening aerobic workout loved by celebrities and civilians alike. With locations around New York, it’s virtually impossible to enter beach season unprepared. 

Taste of Italy

Still handcrafted in Calabria, Italy by the family who founded it, Il Gruppo Migliarese’s line of Italian olive oils and variety of other sauces, spreads, and oils are the easiest way to add flavor and authenticity to any dish. With each item certified USDA organic and held to the highest standard of quality by the Italian agriculture commission, the products allow users to support local farmers while still getting an authentic culinary experience—even from across the Atlantic.

Walk It Off

Aiming to raise both funds and awareness for lung cancer and its cure, the Lung Cancer Research Foundation hosts the 10th annual Strides for Life 3-mile run/walk around Lake Agawam in Southampton. Gather a team or join one that’s already formed, fill out a waiver, and show up on Sunday, August 9 ready to run. In addition to the main event, there will be fun, games, and even a 50-yard dash for the little ones.
